5:18 pm
totals in or south and spare the area or stay where it is the forecast that we are going with right now. heading towards sunday morning, that band will pivot farther off to the east and the storm moves out to sea heading through sunday. no big issues. watching the snow moving up towards new york city tonight tomorrow morning flakes break out on the south coast and cape and heading towards med day andwill -- early afternoon it will run northward running into drier air as it does so that's why we have the lower total north and west of boston. new hampshire probably not seeing flakes. all the focus southeastern parts of massachusetts where we have the highest impact from this one. so snow totals again just a coating to maybe an inch north and west. one to three along the north shore into boston westward along the pike. and 3 to 6 in southeastern massachusetts and we could see isolated totals top a half a foot along the buzzard bay region and south coast if the dan can get farther north.
